The council was established during the second World Internet Conference held in December in Wuzhen, China.

The council includes prominent people of the internet industry from across the globe to contribute ideas for the development of the internet and advice for the holding of future World Internet Conferences.

Mr De Silva hopes to use this platform to grow and establish technological advancements in the field of internet globally.

“It is an opportune time to promote international cooperation and exchanges in the field of internet,” he said.

“I am sure Fiji and other Pacific nations will be beneficiaries. Fiji can become the leading hub of internet in the Pacific.

“Telecom Fiji Limited’s dream of empowering Fijians through internet and offering affordable internet to the people of Fiji are in line with the broad objectives of the World Internet Conference held in Wuzhen, China.”
